A friend has bunded us a large, curiously
shaped ring of pure gold,which wa* found
by a negro, six miles above this place, on
Keowee river, near Gap Uill, whero was
fought, in the days of the lied Man, a well
contested battle with the Pule Faces. The
ring bears on its outside, in perfectly legi
bio italic capital letter*, this inscription:
"W'm. Newman*, o b, 8 June, 1757, 19."
A short distance from where the ring was
picked up, is tho ruins of old Fort George,
whoso precincts, in the olden time, were
nlike crimsoned wi.'h the blood of the white
mart and the savage. Perchance the possessor
of this ring, in one of the many deadly
contests, which bleached bones now to
be seen fully attest, lost his life, and it has
shared tho fate of his dust till now At
